Today’s slate presents a plethora of solid options with three pitchers coming in at 7.0 or higher and seven of them coming in at 6.7 or higher. But we aren’t happy because we can stream today, we are happy because it is Friday!
Also here is where we stand after the first three months of streaming.
Today’s Streamer (Under 30% rostered)
Originally Rich Hill was slated to pitch Saturday but he was moved to Friday so here we are! The problem here is that every single time I pick Rich Hill he is terrible. Every time I don’t pick Rich Hill he dominates. So tread lightly here. Overall Hill has an 18.2 K-BB% and 3.60 SIERA in his last three starts so going against the Cubs he should be able to pitch well.
The backup option for today is a solid one in Brad Keller as he takes on Detroit. I am leaning on Hill over him because Hill is the better pitcher but this is still a very solid play. Keller is good at inducing weak contact and pitching in Detroit’s ballpark will only further help that.
Deep League Streamer (Under 15% rostered)
Both Rich Hill and Brad Keller are rostered under 15%.
Shallow League Streamer (Under 50% rostered)
In shallow leagues, it’s hard not to go with Marco Gonzales against the Athletics. It always blows my mind how Gonzales has such horrible metrics and yet he continues to pitch well. In his last three starts, he has an abysmal -1.4 K-BB% but hey he works through it so whatever. Plus the Athletics are arguably the worst offense in the league.
Saturday 7/2: Josh Winckowski @ CHC and Brady Singer @ DET
Sunday 7/3: Kris Bubic @ DET
